DO NOT perform this step if you are not comfortable with the screwdriver in hand. We will need to disassemble part of the laptop case and check why the keyboard does not work. One of the possible reasons is a ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard.
Open a video on YouTube with disassembly of your particular laptop model. Be sure to unplug it from the mains and remove the battery before starting work. Wear rubber gloves to avoid static electricity. I photograph every stage of disassembly so that there are no problems with assembling the laptop.
By lifting the upper part of the case with the keyboard, check if the ribbon cable is connected. The mount is short and well-fixed, but sometimes falls out (usually after a non-professional repair).
Gently disconnect the ribbon cable (by pulling the white latch left and right). Check for any signs of oxidation or tearing. If everything is in order with the loop, most likely problems with the microcontroller.
Check for malware.
The next step is to check for viruses and other unwanted software installed on the laptop. To do this, download the Malwarebytes utility from the developer’s official website (free download), and run a full scan.

Some keys on the keyboard do not work [Solved]
Installed on one of the working computers with weak hardware Runtu 10.04. Works fast and stable. Delivered instead of Gnumerica oooCalc and everything would be fine, but. Do not work in the upper numeric keypad 1234, 56 work, 7890. Do not work. Well, and accordingly, there is nothing and when to press the same keys with Shift?
Maybe someone knows what to do about it? The numbers from the digital keyboard are still being entered, but still.
The keyboard was replaced?
This is the main problem, it is quite possible that one line of conductors flew away.
I killed half a day tormenting with keyboard settings in Runtu. Outcome:
changed the keyboard. It all worked! 🙂 Nada learns to think easier 🙂 And I shoveled all xorg. 🙂
In general, I write in the title of solutions
I was looking for a solution to the problem for my keyboard. The funny thing is, exactly the same: “do not work in the upper numeric keypad 1234, 56 work, 7890. Do not work.” Miracles. The main thing is that the problem appeared by itself and periodically disappeared. I’ll have to go again.
The same problem, they do not work at all, this line cannot be restored?
If, of course, you have a system for spraying flexible conductors, knowledge of how exactly this is done (I do not have such knowledge and systems).
In all other cases, it is much cheaper to replace the keyboard.
Even on a laptop
In my case, the problem with the top row appeared and disappeared, the problem was solved by an unobtrusive punch to the place where the cable exited the keyboard. Probably temporary.
The keyboard is less than a month, the keys And 0 in B. suddenly stopped working. They are located in completely different places. Hitting the wire also helped. Where the wire enters the keyboard. And he was already starting to shoot the keys. Will repeat again. I’m going to return.
I just solved this problem: I disassembled, blew out the conductors properly, cleaned the contacts, fixed it properly and it all worked!))))
Can someone help. Had the same problem on my A4Tech KBS-26 keyboard.
The buttons 12347890 as well as F5, F10, PrtSc (Print Screen) stopped working
I disassembled and realized that all these buttons are on the same track
(Tracks on transparencies)
There is a way on the Internet how to restore the electrical conductivity of THESE tracks using conductive varnish,
but decided to go the simpler way, took a thin copper vein from the wire (the thinner and softer the better),
and just connected from the very beginning of the track to the first non-working button with the help of stationery tape
(Traces applied on the inside of the transparent film)
The keyboard still works without problems.
Dude, you’re done. I fixed the track in this way.
I solved the problem, disassembled and rubbed the main board with alcohol, and voila, everything worked. They did NOT spill anything on Klava, apparently the contact just disappeared!
Apparently the contact just disappeared! Guest, what is your comment in this thread? So that the contact does not disappear, it is not necessary to mock your keyboard with your fingers in the heat, fits of rage and rage. Treat her like a very close person, although even there it is even worse.
PS: maybe it’s time to Register, you look, the pluses will start putting.
There was a similar problem. I thought it was necessary to change the whole Claudia. But I threw this office https://www.Klavishydlaklaviatury.ru/ not advertising, they really sell here single keys with all the spare parts.
The same problem, the numbers above do not work except 56 and the case does not work 2 and 0, Lenovo laptop, it is interesting that when the Fn buttons are pressed. End Break. the numbers do not work. THEY WORK, but they write not numbers but letters, but case 2 and 0 give 5 and 1, fun MYSTIC pancake, and no one has an answer to this game.
Same problem with USB keyboard. 56 always work, they are fixed. 12347890 do not work due to poor contact, so sometimes hitting the keys helps. On a usb keyboard, try to tighten the screws from the bottom. Then you need to press the keys and Press on the place where they are located from the bottom. If they become alive, then the matter is in contact.
